5. Unclog Drains
If you need to unclog a drain, before you call a plumber, try pouring 1/4 cup of liquid laundry detergent down the drain, then slowly pour one gallon of boiling water after the soap. It creates a slick, hot slippery feel to the pipes, flushing the clog right out.
4. All-Purpose Cleaning Solution
An all-purpose cleaner is something you can use all over the house instead of buying all these other bottles. Blend together 1/3 cup of bleach, one gallon of water, and one teaspoon of powdered detergent. Place the mix in several spray bottles. Keep these in your bathrooms and kitchen for daily cleaning.
3. Extra Strength Hand Cleaner
When your hands are extra dirty, greasy, or have paint on them, make an extra strength cleaner. Combine 1 teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent with 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil, mix, and rub onto your hands. Rinse with water and the oil will help the gunk slide right off.
